Xterra won't start,running fine on way to work,2 hours later it cranks fine but won't start

What is model year? If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.

I realize some vehicles have coil on plug ignition that makes it a little more awkward to visually check for spark, but, the diagnostics still applies. As far as checking fuel pressure, some fuel rails have no Schrader valve, so it's a little more awkward to check fuel pressure, even so, the diagnostic tests still applies.

Can you check applicable trouble codes? When problem is ongoing, can you check for rpm signal?

Running problem

I need the year--make--model--engine size? When the problem is ongoing, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it, while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, if the vehicle is gasoline. If you have spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure.

2004 sonata will not start

Filling up the gas tank can stir up the fuel fumes. You may need to check your evap system? I can't rule out bad gas?
When the problem is ongoing, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse. With intermittent issues, need to test when problem is ongoing. How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?
Problems at higher rpms, the basics, you check for a blockage of some kind, fuel--air--exhaust.

2000 mercury grand marquis 4.6 Intermittent problem. 35,000. miles. Problem engine died several times wile driving. Also after car is parked from a drive will not start. Found that the fuel pump is not...

I'd have to test when problem is ongoing. When you first turn on key, no crank, you should hear the pump run for a few seconds then stop. For initial prime, the computer doesn't need rpm signal. Engine cranking, the computer needs to see rpm signal or it won't ground the fuel pump relay. W/o rpm signal, no spark at the plugs and no fuel injector pulse. I know your talking about fuel, but, when problem is ongoing, check spark and fuel injector pulse, engine cranking.
Intermittent problems are a pain, have to test when problem is ongoing.

I have a Honda civic 1.5 vtec 1995. Car cranks but won't fire, then after 3 tries at starting stops cranking. A jump start usually starts the car again and then ok for a couple of months. This is...

sounds like the distributor. over time the distributor could get debris and condensation inside it and cause it to act up here and there.

1996 Audi A4 1.8 petrol. Turn ignition key and engine starts , runs 2 secs and cuts out need to keep doing this until it finaly starts. Seems to be getting worse.

Car getting started then cuts off after 2 seconds.Its starter related issue.Either the starter is faulty or battery to starter connection is loose or got short in between.It has to be checked and replaced.Get the voltage checked from battery to starter.The battery should show 12 volts if fully charged.

Ran out of diesel 1.9 TDi 74kw. have refuelled and cranked engine for 15mins and still it won't start. there is fuel from tank to filter, to pump and return flow.

This is very important for Audi 1.9 TDI engine: IT IS FORBIDDEN TO RUN WITHOUT DIESEL FUEL IN RESERVOIR !!!
This type of engine is equipped with pump-nozzle injectors which develop up to 2050 bar injection pressure !
Remove the fuel filter, fill up with diesel fuel and put in place. After that try to start the engine with accelerator pedal to the floor. Heed of electric starter motor temperature and battery status! After 40 - 50 sec. of start attempting wait for 1 - 2 minutes for battery and electric starter motor revival. After few starting attemptions the engine must start.

1995 AUDI 90 CS - Hard to start... spark & fuel OK

Have you tried replacing the starter? I know starters can go bad if the car is not started or run for a long time.

I am getting the same car, with the same issue.. it sat for 2 yrs and won't start.

My mechanic told me it is probably a starter.
